A Little Sauciness

When we had "Taste of the Tropics" meal I decided to make a dipping sauce for the coconut shrimp.  Although they were wonderful by themselves and full of flavor I wanted a light sauce to dip it in; I guess because I was in a sauce mood!  I didn't want regular cocktail sauce; I wanted something light and semi-sweet to compliment the flavor of the sweet coconut on the shrimp. 

There was nothing to the sauce.  It was so easy to throw together and the end result was pretty tasty.  I decided to carry the common element of the meal, cilantro, through to the dipping sauce as well.  It was a very nice addition to a simple creation, but it pulled everything together.  I'm sure this would be good served with other foods as well.  Since there's not a lot to it, it would be very easy to change up the flavors and things it would compliment.

Sweet Cilantro Cream



1/4 Cup heavy whipping cream

1/2 Tablespoon sugar

2-3 Teaspoons cilantro, diced


In a mixing bowl add whipping cream and sugar.  Beat on high until it begins to thicken a little.  Once it's at the desired consistency add cilantro and fold in.  Serve along side coconut shrimp or any other desired dish.
